    LSO up close

    For the Avenger photo, the only info for the time frame i could find is this: The Cabot cruised in and out of Pearl Harbor, and while training, TBF plane #5 overran the port side of the flight deck. To avoid being hit, P. M. WITHROW, AMM3c jumped overboard. The USS Young picked him up uninjured. The plane's pilot had been Ens. E. J. LARKIN, with crewmen A. L. PELLETIER, AOM3c and Harold LARSON, ARM3c. it seems no serious injuries or damage happened. Jari

    Going by the carrier's wake it looks like the pilot was lining up as the ship was turning to port, but then it turned slightly to starboard and the pilot had to correct, right wing down. Probably better than this approach: Jari
